Are you ready to buy a home and you are considering going in the route of new builds? It may seem like an easy enough process, where you get to call the shots of how you want your dream home to be, but there is a lot of risk when it comes to new construction if you are going in blindly, and not all real estate agents are experienced or understand the process. It's unfortunately not as trouble-free as we'd like to hope, especially if you don't have the right representative by your side to help with the things that need to be looked out for from a professional's eye. Below, we'll dive into the many reasons you need a realtor with new construction experience representing you in the sale. Team Tezak has extensive knowledge about new construction; from choosing the best location/lot, the best builder, home plans, design and the construction process overall.
1. HIRING THE RIGHT BUILDER
The most important part of hiring the right agent is having a professional's perspective to finding a builder with a great reputation. You get to benefit from our agent's network of vendors, lenders, and home builders. We have the industry expertise to connect you with a builder that matches your needs, and more than likely, have already had experience with the builder with a past client. Or, if we haven't worked with a builder you want to use directly, we can gather person-to-person recommendations from other agents to know the expected experience with said builder. We will help you find one that not only delivers exactly what their clients want, but in a timely fashion.
2. THE RIGHT LOT IN THE RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD
The lot you choose to go with in a new build can either be a positive to your new home, or potentially detrimental. In the excitement of the process, we tend to overlook important features of a property. It's important to have a professional help ensure you make a purchase that will best serve you. We'll be able to find a neighborhood that best fits your lifestyle and a lot that has a location that works for you. Whether you're single with pets, or a family with children, the lot location can really make a huge impact. Especially when it comes time to selling it in the future. These are important things we will be able to help walk you through, so your decisions work in your favor in the long term, as well as now.
3. UPGRADES AND PLAN MODIFICATIONS
Not only will we be able to ensure you get the upgrades and modifications that will best suit your lifestyle, but we will also help you make decisions that will increase the value of your home in the long term. We are working with your best interest in mind, and with our guidance, you can be sure to make changes that end up benefiting you. Team Tezak also can offer assistance with selections and design, having an experienced new home designer as part of our team.
4. HANDLING CONTRACTS AND PAPERWORK
Team Tezak will handle the contract and all of the paperwork. We will be sure to review it to ensure that it is in your best interest. We will be able to help you break down the best loan types, purchasing processes, and steps to make you the beneficiary. We will make sure there are no overlooked terms in a builder's contract that could end up hurting you after you move in, or even during the building process. You need a professional who is experienced with the paperwork and contracts and knows how to make revisions that work in a way that make you happy.
It is imperative in the purchasing process to have an agent that is able to represent you and negotiate for you. The building process is so much more than having the builder put in your favorite counters and floors. We will be able to get you a price that actually benefits you. We will be able to run a comparative market analysis to ensure you are paying a fair price for the property. You don't want to end up overpaying for the home - it could put you in a tough spot when it comes time to sell. We'll also be able to negotiate terms around building time frame, closings costs, and so many other aspects of a contract that you may otherwise overlook.
